Emma Back uses a loop pedal to create layers of vocal and string harmonies, percussive loops and flourishes of Eastern-European tonalities. Her debut release “soars on the strength of [her] stunning vocals, sparse and compelling instrumentation, poetic lyrics and a captivating sound that conjures such singular artists as Andrew Bird and Rhiannon Giddens.” (Tom Huntington, The Times Argus). emmabackmusic.com With soaring harmonies and playful acoustic arrangements, Colorado band Still, We Rise gives voice to the rollercoaster of life through the eyes of Anastasia Rose (vocals, guitar, piano, french horn, percussion) and Sara Giita (vocals, piano). As classically trained musicians turned acoustic singer-songwriters, they bring joy and depth to their inspiring songs, interspersed with cover favorites. stillweriseacoustic.com
